The problem you may be encountering is that the EPS "graphics visualizer" does not know what to do with requests for the Math fonts that appear in the PostScript code. This would be a problem if you used grouping symbols or Greek characters. You may want to review the documentation for your PostScript rendering program to see how fonts are added. If the program uses Ghostscript as the rendering engine, you can take advantage of the HOWTO at the Wolfram Research FAQ site: http://www.wolfram.com/support/Graphics/Formats/EPS/Ghostscript.html > Also, is there the possibility of just the PS format in Mathematica 3.0? Only if you are using Unix. There is a legacy shell script in the Mathematica installation called psfix that can do the job. -- P.J.
